Trigger Issues..

by Nikki van der Gaag

Bling, Sharon Stone, romance and blood.... All are linked by diamonds, the most glittering of prizes.... or a symbol of greed, lust and overblown celebrity? At the same time as sparkling innocently in a footballer’s ear, the gems fund some of the worst fighting in Africa. Diamonds are not as rare as we think and have been mined by virtual slave labour, so why are they so expensive? The murky world of the brilliant gem exposed.
